I really enjoyed this place. I went for a 4 day weekend and participated in the special meditation instruction. The instructors are excellent, the staff accommodating, the food was healthy and delicious. I had a simple room in the main building and it was clean and adequate. I did wish I had a bathtub. The rest of the facilities are... More

This was my 2nd visit to The Oaks and certainly not my last. I booked only 2 days in advance and was lucky to be fit in even during a busy week of Yoga & Pilates. I loved the fact that I knew almost all of the staff members and dance instructors, as so many stay there for years and... More

I would not recommend the Oaks if you do not feel like death is imminent. Or if you are expecting expansive grounds (perhaps with oaks). This is a place that does not appear to have been renovated recently, I felt like I was in a retirement home for much of my stay. The people are very friendly and the staff... More

I arrived(with teen) for the mother daughter weekend. The reservation clerk, Margarita, was so professional and sweet. My girl started complaining incessantly--robbing me of the tranquility I was in search of. I decided to send her home after being there for 2 hours. I stayed and had a blast! Never before have I been treated with such dignity and integrity.... More

My daughter and I just spent 6 nights at the Oaks during one of their Mother-daughter weeks. We just loved it - very informal (you can wear sweat pants to dinner!), well organized, great and varied fitness classes, delicious food, lovely staff and guests, and very good spa treatments. And the price is definitely right. It is not a fancy... More

Friendly, helpful staff (and guests), beautiful, small town in chaparral mountains. Opportunity is the key word for this wellness spa. The spa is set up in way that gives you choices in workouts, spa services and healthy food (5 times a day - 3 meals, 2 snacks and an extra fruit smoothie) to eat around 1200 calories a day -... More

A small, clean and friendly spa right in the center of Ojai offering a whole menu of spa services and massages, a variety of exercise and fitness classes, and a lean 1,200 calorie per day meal plan. I spent 3 nights here with a friend recently and had a good time although there are definitely pros and cons to a... More

The friendly caring staff and food were out of this world. Every day the helpful management team would go above and beyond their duty to make my stay absolutely wonderful. The location is just to die for. You can walk to The Libbey bowl for an outdoor concert or simply go shopping in the art galleries nearby. The concerts were... More

I missed the orientation tour the first day. No staff member showed up the second day either. Therefore, I did not know about the health advisor, where I could have given more specific dietary needs, and therefore miss being scolded by the meal servers for giving back something I could not eat. I did not know about the indoor hot... More

It's terrible we didn't get to give you Orientation! As you experienced, we ARE a unique destination. Knowing the details is a key to a successful spa getaway. We're looking in to how we can prevent this from happening again, as well as the scolding from wait staff. Our wait staff is normally known for being very friendly! Please feel... More
